Your neighborhood. Your ideas. Your home.
Congratulations Barnum and Villa Park!
At the December 3rd Learning Community event, Doug Linkhart, Executive Director of the Department of Environmental Health, announced that the Barnum and Villa Park neighborhoods are the newest additions to the Sustainable Neighborhoods program. We are thrilled to add two new, diverse, and passionate communities to the program. Thank you to all the neighborhoods who applied this round and we are excited to continue working with you, as participating neighborhoods or as members of the Learning Community, to enhance the sustainability of your neighborhoods.
Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in making Denver a vibrant and sustainable community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program organize workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents' ecological footprint. Participating neighborhoods earn program credits for their efforts and, depending on the number of credits earned in a given year, they may receive designation as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood” from the City. The City provides in-kind resources, such as printing, venue and catering fees, and staff time to support projects.
